What is University Suspension?

University Suspension is separation from the University for a designated period of time after which the student shall be eligible to apply for readmission to the University. Readmission to the University is not guaranteed. Conditions for consideration of readmission may be specified. A student’s reacceptance into the student’s school or college is at the discretion of the school or college. A student who is on suspension is prohibited from participating in any University activity or program. The individual may not be in or on any University owned or leased property without securing prior approval from the Director of Community Standards. A notation of “Suspension” shall be placed on the student’s official transcript until graduation. However, the student may petition the Director of Community Standards for earlier removal of the notation upon completion of the suspension. The University of Connecticut will not accept credits earned at another institution during a period of suspension.

What does actively suspended mean?

A student is actively suspended when:

  • the designated period of time for suspension has not expired/or is still current
  • the designated period of time for suspension has ended, but the student has not been approved by Community Standards for readmission support.

What does it mean to be “approved by Community Standards?”

During the suspension period, the student will need to complete a UCompass Suspension sanction. This sanction includes meetings with a staff member from Community Standards (quantity of meetings to be mutually determined). The student and staff member will discuss the implications of their suspension, potential behavior modification(s), goals, areas of growth, as well as discuss the readmission process. Once the suspension period has ended the staff member will determine based on the totality of information gathered during UCompass Suspension meetings, if they can support the readmission process.

How can a student apply for readmission?

After the student has meet with a staff member from Community Standards and has been approved to reapply to the University, they may visit: Readmission Process for more information.

What is University Expulsion?

University Expulsion is permanent separation from the University. A student who has

been expelled is prohibited from participating in any University activity or program. The individual may not be in or on any University owned or leased property. A permanent notation of “Expulsion” shall be placed on the student’s transcript.
